    A Certified 68+ Clydesdale!

    A Certified 68+ yo Clydesdale!

    Wearing the 50+'r Jersey

    No nasty comments, please! (I just finished a 4 hour ride)

    Anyway, that's about as "skinny" as I am ever going to get - I have learned to live with me!

    And what's wrong with you? You look great even after a long hard ride and hey great legs. Also love the bike! I also ride a steel Lemond (2002 Zurich). The only comment - the socks... do you ride in those????

    Add to Twins, White Socks.
    You at 68 have Earned New socks.
    Now if anyone mentions your lack of hair, you will have to grow more.

    Very cool. I bet there's not a ton of 68 year olds who can stand as tall after a 4 hour ride. I know a lot middle aged guys/gals who'd be hurtin. Keep it up!

    Well, can't agrue with that.

    Then again, I make it a point to not argue with anyone who can ride me into the ground, lol.

    Welcome to the herd DnvrFox, and it's just simply awsome that you are still on the bike and going strong.

    Thanks.

    I've been around here (BFN and later the Clyde's forum) quite a while - since 2001 for BFN. I started the 50+ Forum and the Recreational Forum back when if we had a grand total of 17 folks signed in to the entire forum it was considered a large group, and we all knew each other.

    We have lots and lots of folks in the 50+ forum who are older than I and can outride me. I ride with a guy in his mid 70's who, yesterday, was on a knobby-tired mtn bike and kept pushing me on my Lemond with 700x25's.

    Another guy I know was a former TdF racer who rides a vintage 1950's 10 speed and literally drops everyone - he is 75 years old.

    So, I am just a slow rider who manages to get in about 100-150 miles per week, along with about 3 miles of swimming and several hours of weight lifting, and a bit of walking.

    Dnvr, you're going to be cycling well into your 90+ range. I expect you to be riding your age on your 100th birthday, frankly.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    You've certainly been an inspiration to me. I'm 66 and still a noob here. But it gets to be more fun every week
    and it helps to know there are others my age enjoying riding. In mid-May I rode 4 miles and my wife wanted to call 911 to come for me when I got home. Last Saturday I rode 28 miles and could have done more. You have been very encouraging and I want to say thanks,
    Red, like the color my hair used to be.

    That is WONDERFUL news.

    It's so much fun to be able to ride, climb stairs and do other things in life without killing one's self.

    No lack of hair is good - keeps down the helmet hair effect!!!
